7 Deadly Bass Fishing Secrets

6)     The best time of day to fish for bass is the time period from two hours before sunset to right after sunset occurs.  You will see many anglers speak about the virtues of beginning a fishing session before sunrise.  It has been my experience that there is not a great deal of difference between fishing at 7am as opposed to noon. It is a bit better at sunrise for sure but the difference is not large.  The time period before sunset however is much better than sunrise.  There is no question it is the best time to fish for bass.

7)     If you primary goal is to catch as many fish as possible then live bait is your best option.  It is also the best option if you wish to catch as large as fish as possible.  A box full of fancy lures is great.  If you fish for the sporting thought of catching a fish with bait that is not natural that box will help you immensely.  Live bait will however put more fish in your boat.  The best live bait you can use is a smaller fish.  The size of the bait will need to be tailored to the size of the bass you seek.  In Northern Minnesota where bass generally do not get much bigger than seven pounds a three to four inch sucker minnow works best.  In southern Florida where fifteen pound monsters lurk a twelve inch wild shiner is much more appropriate.  Nitecrawlers and leeches also work very well for catching bass.

These seven secrets contain powerful information that will fuel a rise in your fishing catching success.  Next time you are on the water pay attention to each of them and your fishing prospects will reap the benefits.
